safe-upgrade has different checks.
It is what is written in the man, but experience shows this is not true.
After installing kernel 3.2 I tried both:
apt-get dist-upgrade, which gave
1060 upgraded, 312 newly installed, 18 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
aptitude full-upgrade gave
1050 packages upgraded, 313 newly installed, 30 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
and then asks for removal of 18 other packages.
which means that aptitude wants to remove 52 packages, and apt-get 18
It's difficult to say what is the good choice, but anyway then are not equivalent.
(apt-get upgrade gives:
801 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 261 not upgraded.)
